Boston Mayor Thomas Menino has gained quite the rep for his total lack of sports knowledge. In the past, he's referred to Patriots players Rob Gronkowski and Wes Welker as "Grabowski" and "Weckler." He's given Red Sox catcher Jason Varitek credit for kicking the game-winning field goal in the 2002 Super Bowl (Adam Vinatieri is the guy who actually kicked it). And, he's called Bobby Orr's Stanley Cup-clinching goal in 1970 "ionic." But, he's outdone himself here. In this video, Mayor Menino refers to Kevin Garnett and Rajon Rondo as—sigh—"KJ" and "Hondo."
"There's a lot of heart in this team, let me just tell you," he says. "KJ is great but Hondo is really the inspiration. Hondo drives that team."
SMH. At this point, why hasn't the Mayor created a position on his staff for someone who knows something about sports so he can stop sounding like an idiot when he's asked about them? Hey, Sports Guy: You in?
